Waking Up...

Joe is starting to wake up to the world.  Here are some more sweet pics...

The Way to her Heart

Being a big sister has been a little tough at times for Maggie, as we expected.  She is hanging in there and making progress every day, but there are definitely "moments" we didn't have before Joe came along.  There are a couple of things that will almost always dry her tears - TV and FOOD!  Not just any food...usually fruit (especially blueberries and strawberries) or of course ice cream or cookies.  Let's not forget whatever Mom & Dad are snacking on.

Mmmmm - nothing like sharing a chocolate shake and fries with Daddy at the park:

Thanks to Miss Chris for bringing over fruit and whip cream!

Introducing Joseph Newman Krynock!!!

On Wed, July 9th our sweet baby boy Joseph Newman entered the world at 9:09 am. He weighed 8 lbs. 4 oz. and was 20 in. long. We are all doing great! "Joe" is named after his great-great grandfather and is the most precious little boy ever! Maggie is quickly adjusting to her baby brother...she is already attempting to say Joseph, and she blew him a kiss this morning.

Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers along the way. Here are some photos of Joseph (click on pics to enlarge)!

King of the Wild

We recently decided to let our indoor cats start exploring the great outdoors a bit.  Those of you who have spent time around Lewis (or overheard him while on the phone with me) know he can be extremely loud and annoying.  I simply couldn't handle being inside with him all day anymore. 

We also live in a neighborhood which tons of deer frequent and recently there has been a lone doe passing through our yard a lot.  Well, she is quite the friendly gal and I caught some very cool video of her and Lewis befriending one another the other day.  We were completely shocked that Lewis didn't seem the least bit scared of her - seeing as he hides under the toilet when it thunders!  Instead they spent at least a couple of hours galivanting around our property, disappearing in the woods for periods of time and then strolling back into our front yard, always the doe following Lewis.  This was on day 3 of his new life outdoors!  Mark has been praising him as the "King of the Wild".

As a side note, Maggie saw this deer the other morning about 5 feet from the window and started banging on the window shouting "Moo, Cow!!".  So funny...
